Re: Lie Nielsen or Veritas Dovetail saw?

Patrick Chase
The old Independence Tool dovetail saw had zero or near-zero rake.

Independence is the company that became L-N's saw business (Thomas L-N bought it from Pete Taran and Patrick Leach), so it wouldn't surprise me if the L-N's were initially filed that way as well.

Recent L-Ns that I've seen had geometries very similar to their LV counterparts, and fairly relaxed rake, though I'm not absolutely sure of whether those were filed by their owners.
